Simple Scrapper Blog Hop & Giveaway | January 2013

January 07, 2013

Welcome back to this month's Simple Scrapper Blog Hop!

The Premium Membership Templates and Story Starters for January are here!  And here's a look at how I was inspired to use them in my own memory keeping.

January's Story Starters are centered around Gratitude and led me to find this beautiful photo of my son laughing amongst the outtakes of our Christmas Card photo shoot and create my page The Sound of You.  Seeing this picture made me think about how often the sounds of my boys laughing, playing and enjoying one another, bring a smile to my face.

Here, I used a new template from the Premium Collection to help me turn a handful of my favorite vintage papers from Jenni Bowlin into a charming quilt-like background that compliments my vintage-treated photo.  As you can see, a blocked design like this one is great for mixing several patterned papers on a page.

The Sound of You | Supplies: Jenni Bowlin Studio: Red and Black Extensions No. 2 and 3, Soda Water Collection, Rhinestone Buttons and Bows, Vintage Bling, Rub-on Frames; Karen Funk: Simple Stitches; Kim Jensen Designs: Perforated Alpha; Ju Kneipp: Far From Here; Simple Scrapper: Premium Template.

I also used another new template from the Simple Scrapper Premium Collection in Love This Place--a page about the joy of owning our first home.

Love This Place | Supplies: One Little Bird These Four Walls and These Four Wall Add-on; Simple Scrapper: Premium Template.
